Question from the Internet:
“How can we understand?”
True, complete understanding is called “attainment”.
We attain something when it becomes part of us or we become part of it through reaching similarity of form, we reach similarity of qualities with whatever we attain.
This is not an intellectual understanding, “knowing something” theoretically. This is a combined emotional and intellectual attainment, when emotionally bonding with something we also understand it, taking over the “mind” of the attained.
It is a bit similar to how method actors gradually become the character they are researching, playing, by completely immersing into that character while forgetting about who they were, who they are originally.
Attainment is “dressing into” new qualities, into a new way of life to the point of becoming “like” the new form, the quality we dressed into, while our previous, original quality, our original form remains as a contrast to compare, verify against.
The highest level of attainment for a human being is becoming “like” Nature’s all-encompassing, life-giving and life-sustaining evolutionary force, by researching, practising the qualities of that force — selfless, unconditional service and love of everything outside of one’s self.
We can learn, practice this towards other people in closed, methodically organized and conducted environments until we all attain that force through our unity when we all tangibly, realistically become as one despite and above our unique individuality and all of our differences that are neither suppressed nor are erased.
